In spatial and movement research the use of the term `landscape ́ is often understood as something external to and independent of the body. Climate change, high dynamics in urban development and new social movements are asking for methods, to read, interpret, design and to choreograph landscapes as structures of transformation.

We believe that how the body interacts with the landscape shapes its structure simultaneously as the landscape informs the body. Questioning approaches and perceptions of movement, rhythm and sequence could lead to methods of perceiving and designing landscapes as performative processes.

The workshop is presented in the context of Hybrid Platform, an initiative of the Berlin University of the Arts and the technical University of Berlin, to support projects in research and education in the heart of Campus Charlottenburg Berlin.

The borderlining.workshopseries are about transcultural learning in cities dialogues such as Rio de Janeiro and Berlin. They are asking for cultural images, sceneries and characteristics about landscape, open spaces and infrastructure. They are looking for practices in reclaiming ressources, for relationships between space and acteurs, for glocal qualities and phenomens, for parallels, cross-fades and performance in everyday life.

Die borderlining.workshopseries thematisieren transkulturelles Lernen im Städte-Dialog, beispielsweise Rio de Janeiro und Berlin. Sie erfragen kulturelles Image, typische Szenarien oder Charaktere von Landschaft,  Freiraum und Infrastruktur. Sie schauen nach Praktiken der Ressourcenaneignung, nach Relationen zwischen Raum und Nutzer, nach glokalen Qualitäten und Phänomenen, nach Überblendungen und Performance im alltäglichen Leben.
